Julie & I took off for the Northern California coast a couple of weekends ago. It was a spur of the moment trip and was a really good time. The story and photos are posted to our blog and can be found here -

Thanks Ski for this trip.We have enjoyed Fort Ross also.

On our first trip there,when our girls were very small you drove

Hwy 1 right past the main gate to the fort unlike now where the road has bypassed the fort.

I like the "new" road as it makes the fort quieter.

Next time we travel up that area we will include a couple nights at Salt Pt SP.

Another great story.

Seward's folly. Bet the Russians would like to renegotiate that deal!

Ahhhh, the Sonoma/Mendocino  coast-what can I say, plus a visit to Fort Ross to boot! Thanks for taking me back to some great memories of wandering on those beaches that started as a kid with my family and has continued 'till a few years ago.! Wow a new place to visit-Jenner Headlands Preserve.  In a simpler time, you could rough it on those beaches there w/o a lot of people to bother you to much, but today you need to manage it or it could still be lost! 

 

I still remember the fight against "Sea Ranch" to the north of there, over just who had a right to use the beaches-we the people or those with the money-old fights still going on today! I lived for a while (one winter/spring) in a   small rented summer cabin at Jenner by the sea, while I got myself together before I  returned to school.  Good memories those were, so thanks again guys!  Time to head back :D !

Did you see the peach pits? On the bluff south of Stump Beach, there is a large quantity of old peach pits, as though a ton of peaches rotted there many many years ago. Last I heard, no one knew the exact story of how they got there.
